I just expected a little more than this. I've read some of Coleman's other books and this one just isn't up to snuff. It's certainly readable and should be added to someone's library if they are interested in yeti, bigfoot, or cryptozoology in general. The book is titled for Tom Slick but Bernard Heuvelman gets ample coverage in this also. I wish there was more on Slick's activities regarding the sasquatch. The coverage of the yeti expeditions was the same basic coverage you can get in nearly any book on the subject. I know Coleman is a capable writer and researcher, and I was expecting better than this.
I've read and enjoyed other biographies much more than this. I also mention the numerous minor typos throughout the book, simple little things that should have been checked and caught in the editing process (there are quite a number of times there is a 'hut' or 'he' when it was supposed to be 'but' and 'be') but those are disregardable (by no means is my grammer or spelling perfect). There were also several occassions while reading this biography of Tom Slick in which I forgot the book was about Slick because of sideline stories or wandering off topic that didn't seem directly (or indirectly) involving Slick.
Mr. Coleman, best wishes but you are better than this.

Format: Paperback
The book starts off with the background to Tom Slick's family, which in itself was entertaining ,and then on to Tom's expeditions. The book, although a true story, reads like an adventure novel. I'm only sad Tom Slick is no longer with us as I think he is a great loss to the scientific community ,with his zest for investigating the usual. The ending of the book and the stories of involvement with the CIA gave great food for thought and I won't spoil anyone's enjoyment of the book by going into more detail.I would recommend this book to anyone, whether a cryptozoologist or not, as it entertains as well as informs. I emailed the author to say how much I enjoyed the book and was delighted to receive a reply.This is a book that deserves to be read.

Format: Paperback
If you're looking for the typical cryptozoology book, one full of quick anecdotes and numerous sighting reports and scary stories, you may want to pick up one of Loren's other books focusing on general oddities or specific monster types. They are among the best of the genre.
If, however, you're interested in the biography of a true American character, a businessman, an adventurer, and an iconoclast, this is the book for you. Yes, you'll also be interested if you happen to want to know what drove one of the men responsible for fueling the western fascination with the Yeti. But "Tom Slick" is a good read no matter how you feel about hairy hominids. I can't recommend it enough.

Format: Paperback
I tend to love the author's books but this was perhaps his most boring book to date. I simply could not get into the material. There were also several misspellings of words that I found weird. I never noticed such mistaken in the previous books I've read from the author.
